Serie A transfers: Inter, Juventus, and AS Roma all need to sell before further summer signings

Clubs are already getting busy in the summer transfer window, but bringing players in won't be entirely straightforward for Inter, Juventus, and AS Roma.


Summer signings can’t really begin for Juventus, Inter or AS Roma until they manage to get rid of some players. Each of the three clubs have fallen victims to their own spending in recent seasons, with UEFA fining all three for breaching Financial Fair Play regulations.

With FFP rulings yet to be released from the 2022/23 season, the three will have to be cautious when operating in the market so as to not risk overspending again. Each of the three, then, are facing serious problems when looking to spend to buy players to bolster their respective squads during this summer transfer window.

Juventus‘ elusive spending has seemed to catch up with them. According to La Repubblica, the Bianconeri have a financial mountain to climb, with it being revealed that between wages and the proceeds of sales. The Turin club need to raise €120 million.

Rumours have been swirling already that star men Dusan Vlahovic and Federico Chiesa are available for sale this summer, with both attracting interest from notable European sides. If the pair depart it would raise the required sum. The Old Lady are thought to want a fee of €80m for Vlahovic and €60m for Chiesa.

As such, Juventus have placed the proposed restructuring of the club on hold until 2024, instead viewing the upcoming season as a transitional period, regardless of whether they raise the funds required to be active.

AS Roma require €30m, Inter can only buy if they sell

For Roma, it has been a case of sacrificing future talent for the sake of the present and, more specifically, for a team that Jose Mourinho is happy to compete with now. Whilst some youngsters have impressed the veteran coach, he too understands that it is necessary for some to be moved on if the Giallorossi are to improve upon the 2022/23 season.

So, Roma may well spend no money on transfer fees this summer, instead being active in the free market as they have shown to be so far with the signings of Houssem Aouar and Evan Ndicka.

Although Inter earned big money for reaching the Champions League final, they will still face financial issues this window. Inter will have to act under the restrictions of needing to sell before signing.

This should serve as no issue though, there is interest in a number of players in the Nerazzurri squad, and if Inter see value in selling someone in order to buy then they will be tempted to in order to build a squad capable of challenging for the scudetto next season.
